A bit like the British TV series Casualty crossed with a 24-like docudrama. The events are set up, you know what’s going to happen, and when they do everything kicks off.
An engaging account of the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
The characters work well. The enactment is believable. The intercutting of contemporary footage fits well though it is done without explanation or blending.
I was unaware of the shootout in water town. Pipe bombs, handguns, rifles, it looks like a scene from GTA: violent chaos.
A portrait of bravery and resolve from law enforcement, emergency services, and the people of Boston. The end scene footage of some of the real people portrayed in the movie is worth seeing on its own.
